"today in the bay's" pete suratos will have a live report in 30 minutes. a bizarre investigation out of the east bay. two firefighters are facing charges accused of fighting police officers in a drunken rage. >> "today in the bay's" bob redell live at the march yot where this allegedly happened. it reportedly after after a charity ball event there. >> reporter: good morning, laura and sam. two off duty contra costa county

placed both firefighters on administrative leave. live in walnut creek, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> 6:03. a major twist in a homicide case in san francisco. bay area filmmaker and community activist kevin epps has been released from jail. the d.a. is not following charges due to lack of evidence. he's accused of killing marcus polk at his home on sunday. polk's son says his father had been estranged from a woman living in the filmmaker's home. the two got into a heated exchange. the case remains under investigation. a bicyclist is hospitalized after being hit by a car at the intersection of giant road and trenton boulevard near highway 80 last night. the roads were closed down as a result for several hours while police were investigating. so far no word on the bicycle it's condition. >> this morning an investigation is under way after a plane
crashes killing the only person on board. there were reports the plane might have clipped power lines before crashing. it happened near kirker pass road a few miles east of the buchanan field airport. a student says he's the person behind racist graffiti found at an east bay school. the male student admitted to vandalizing the boy's bathroom at cal high school in san ramon. that graffiti said whites above one toilet and colored above another in the boy's bathroom. >> not okay. not tolerated in this area at all. i'm pretty shocked that that would be put in our bathroom. >> so far nobody has come forward with who wrote a racial slur inside the girl's bathroom. that happened on monday. >> 6:05. new details in the sierra lamar murder case and how attorneys for antolin garcia torres plan to defend him.
court lawyers suggest that defense attorneys may argue at trial that the morgan hill teenager ran away. her body has never been found. now defense lawyers say a young woman who lived with lamar at the time claims the teenager told her she was planning to leave home and showed her a packed suitcase. the trial starts in january. 6:06 on your wednesday. the problem is not with the water, but what could be added, fluoride. there were protests last night to get the message out. five years ago, here is the back story. the ut wahher district voted in favor of the fluoride proposal. the system is ready. in december residents will start receiving the water with fluoride. children with no access to regular dental care will benefit. >> county health has sum ported
it, it's effective and safe and prevents tooth decay and prevents tooth decay. >> extreme toxic poison. >> fluoride is used in the ut wahher in san francisco and in oakland government statistics show more than half the entire population of the united states drinks flouridated water and has done so for decades. >> this week cal fire is expected to present findings after examining the burn area of the recent loma fire. concerns are growing about mudslides and erosion. there will be sandbags available for anyone who might need them. another big concern is the burned watershed areas above the reservoirs. the water district is expecting to get the cal fire study. the office of emergency services say it expects to review it early next week. >> we've got storms coming our way. a live look at san francisco, the skies are nice and clear this morning, but it's all going
to change tomorrow. >> meteorologist rob mayeda tracking the storm that's coming. >> we're seeing an impressive view on the satellite. what makes this storm different from others, it's got a real good tap to tropical moisture which will boost rainfall rates, but not today. north of sonoma and mendocino may see a stray shower or two. the burn areas around the loma fire and the soeb ran knows fire under a flash flood watch from thrgs afternoon into friday. that is thrthursday's forecast. 60s to low 70s from san francisco to oakland. the next storm systems comes in during the morning hours during friday morning's commute. another storm that comes in, probably more wind for sunday and halloween for now, fingers crossed, looks dry. there comes the next storm as you head into tuesday morning.
>> there you go, rob, fingers crossed. looking over here toward the rest of the bay. a smooth flow crossing the bay on those bridges. no winds like yesterday. the peninsula slowing, no surprises for the south bay. southbound 880, all lanes cleared at a street. northbound 880 still closed from the activity, a pedestrian hit earlier. we have police activity still on the street. meanwhile the south bay, mild slowing north 101 north of 680. that's a smooth drive as well. b.a.r.t. reports ten-minute delays from daly city towards balboa. unscheduled maintenance. hopefully we're clearing. back to you. coming up next, the public is seething over thousands of california soldiers being told to pay up. >> if i did three years which is what i did, i qualify for
$7,500. >> we hear from a local man impacted by this controversy as we learn more about the investigation into why it happened in the first place. keeping you safe from scam hers, the convenient back door criminals are now using to try to steal your information. oops, they did it again. apple accidentally leaking a picture of their new product a day before they really show it off. we'll take a look coming up in business and tech. mike traffic teas
today, the wettest october since 2011. not adding much to the total today. but tomorrow a different story as the satellite radar shows we're tracking our next storm system and the impact coming up. as we look through times, a little longer to get from highway 4 to the maze. most of the slowing through hercules where highway 4 resides. on the peninsula, no delays, another minute to get from van ness to sfo. this morning the defense
department is vowing to resolve this growing anger over thousands of national guardsmen being ordered to pay backbone news they received for reenlistment. some of those have been forced to repay tens of thousands of dollars. in many cases military recruiters may have known the soldiers were ineligible when the bonuses were given to them. one south bay soldier who received a $7,500 ben news in 2007 was asked last month to pay it back. >> show me, show me something in writing that shows, in fact, that california -- the california guard couldn't do this. i just want an explanation. >> as do a lot of folks. well, president obama weighed in yesterday asking the pentagon to speed up its probe. congress is also now launching an investigation. >> now to the latest fallout from the wells fargo fraudulent account scam. another bay area agency is cutting ties for the san francisco bank. this time it's the east bay's
largest water district. east bay mud voted yesterday to suspend some but not all of its activities with wells fargo for at least a year. the water board asked the banking giant to rescind bonuses for employees who were responsible for the scam. wells fargo says it values its relationship with east bay mud and will work to rebuild that partnership. despite the release of new chip and pin credit cards designed to keep us safe from scammers, numbers show fraud is actually skyrocketing right now. "today in the bay's" tracie potts live in washington with the details. we're learning criminals have found a back door on the internet to try to steal people's information. >> reporter: absolutely, laura. those chip cards that we're used to using in stores now don't really make a difference at all when we make purchases online. you can verify them the same way. fraud seems to be moving from physical stores much more to
online. new numbers show about $4 billion in fraud expected this year. that could jump to over $7 billion by the year 2020. it's hitting merchants, too, because merchants are losing about 7% of their revenue to fraud. so a couple of things happening here, the new chip cards work, they work fine. it's just that they don't have a mechanism to work online. the industry is looking at things like online tokens instead of entering a different number that you would enter associated with your card, as opposed to entering your actual card number which can be swiped so easily. they're also looking at providing more information so there's more information to verify those online purchases. but for now, the experts say there are a few things you should do. do not save your card number on store sites. it's convenient. we all do it, but it could put you at risk. they also say be sure to sign out and log off when you're purchasing something online and never make online purchases when
you're using public wi-fi, if you can avoid it at all. that's one of the easiest ways criminals can swipe your number. >> all good advice. tracie potts, thanks. a second ago you were talking about wells fargo, it copped to creating public accounts. the public is looking for punishment. first on the list of targets, former ceo john stumpf. >> many investigators want to claw back his pay. >> claw back, the financial term used to describe getting money back from someone who maybe didn't deserve it. stumpf's critics have a powerful ally in congress, senator elizabeth warren. she's taken wells fargo under her wing, the issue. she told stumpf to resign. eventually he did resign. there's a new ceo. a lot of observers think the new ceo of wells fargo, his time is probably limited as well.
"new york times" op ed is asking how this man, tim sloan, will fix things, considering he was there during the scandal. meantime sloan appeared to employees on a closed circuit all employees' meeting where he reportedly told workers you should expect more tough headlines, adding, i need to make it safe to talk about the problems that got us here. one of the main criticisms is management knew about the cheating and, in fact, required unreachable sales goals, all but condoned it. stocks were mildly lower tuesday. futures call for another loss on the opening bell a little less than an hour from now. you watch apple stocks, the company announcing declining sales of its iphone. now, as we watch apple and the iphone again, they could have sold more of those iphones. they say if they had made more of the bigger version of the iphone 7. that's apparently what people who had to give up their exploding samsungs wanted to buy, but there weren't enough of
them. apple set to show off new macs as well tomorrow. apple accidentally leaked this picture as part of its new operating system. you can see the new computer includes a fingerprint reader along the top. you will recall several websites accidentally showed off pictures of the iphone 7 before the release as well. it's amazing how often we, amazon, apple, we're seeing the pictures -- >> don't you think some of that is planned? >> it probably is. in this case it's just not exciting enough to leak ahead of time. >> fenger print reader doesn't do it for yu? >> would you buy a whole brand new computer based on that sf. >> i have too many sticky fingers around my house. a lot of kids on the computer with homework. the biggest, most powerful company in the world, as we talk about apple. the world series, remember when this used to be the jake? they will be rocking in cleveland. they were last night when the
indians took graeme one of the world series beating the cubs 6-0. >> today's game time pushed up an hour because there's a storm expected in cleveland later tonight. this next story may have cubs fans thanking us for the jinks. looking at a senior quote from a high school yearbook in 1993. it says chicago cubs, 2016, world champions. >> where did he come up with 2016? i don't know. but marcus meza then known as michael lee was a southern california transplant who always maintained his allegiance to the chicago cubs. now he's four wins away from being right, whereas indians fans might point out three losses away from being completely wrong. >> who found it and we need to talk to him. >> he claims he's prophetic. we'll have to see. >> do you have high school quotes? >> i think i did. >> i thought it was meaningful
at the time i'm sure. >> i know. very pro found, your 18-year-old self. >> going deep into more weather forecasting, more rain coming, but not necessarily today. >> not forecasting world series. >> in the farmer's almanac. >> three storms to deal with over the next seven days. right now a break in the storms. less wind than yesterday morning. pleasant changes for your morning commute. a thin layer of fog coming through the golden gate bridge right now. 58 degrees in san francisco. you see the wind speeds that were yesterday gusting to 20 to 30 miles per hour. nothing too bad in terms of wind, and rain today likely staying on the north coast. the rain hasn't stopped for areas north of mendocino county. that's likely where it will stay today. mostly clear skies to start. partly cloudy later on. today is the dry day before more rain comes in during tomorrow morning's commute.
6 os to low 70s from san francisco to oakland. rain at times for tomorrow morning, heavier for thursday evening's commute. check out friday morning. big storms coming on in. could involve thunderstorms for friday morning. so this next storm packing a much bigger punch for the south bay. you see the rain totals adding up, one to two inches we think coming up across the south bay hilltops and maybe two to three in the north bay. there's storm two into friday. storm three comes in for sunday. and then halloween right now looks dry, but storm number four on the doorstep, sending us into a rainy start to november as well. there it is, playing out across your seven-day forecast. dry day today, another dry day on saturday. halloween for now, just ghostly cloudy skies for the moment. mike? >> i'm focusing on the nimitz. first let's show you the map, south bay typical pattern, peninsula typical light as we see. hayward we have a crash still blocking the tennyson on-ramp.
we have the closure in place after an earlier pedestrian-involved crash. if you have to get on northbound 880, loop back from the other direction. i found this on the live camera, reports of a car fire -- there you see some smoke and activity. this is northbound 880 just past 98. coming up right toward the coliseum. it looks like one lane is blocked by fire crews. you see if smoke again from an earlier car fire. we're still waiting for word on the people who were in there. the rest of the commute, a smooth drive through hayward and pleasanton. a typical build for that route. thanks a lot, mike. fireworks on prime time television. >> go back to the tapes of your show recently. you are fascinated with sex. >> the heated exchange between former speaker newt gingrich and megyn kelly has blown up social media. important step forward. the time is long overdue... pharmaceutical industry. passes - the ballot.
with a break like this, we could do a cast or surgery. whichever's faster. surgery means recovery time. a cast will get you back out there right away, but it's bulky. and can it take a beating? how did you break it again? roller derby. hip-checked. there's a rematch next week. snarling clementine has to be there. that's me. okay. so what color should the cast be? orange. orange is good.

"nbc bay area responds" to a concord man who was owed hundreds of dollars from verizon but couldn't get it. >> chris chmura helps out this man and joins us now. good morning. back in january michael stagg brought a new cell phone and switched service to verizon. in doing so, he said verizon promised him a $650 rebate. they told him he just needed to send in his old phone as well as the final bill from his previous carrier, so he did.
he never received his rebate. he said he called, e-mailed, went to the store and couldn't get any help. so he reached out to us. we contacted verizon, michael received a $650 credit on his account. in a statement verizon said we strive to deliver the best possible experience for every verizon customer. in this case we did not deliver on that promise. it went on to say it was pleased it could make things right with michael. if you have a consumer complaint, you can call us. the number is 1-888-996-tips, or visit nbcbayarea.com/responds. tomorrow, a hiccup when trying to sell some concert tickets. have a great day. >> thanks, chris. up next on "today in the bay," a very unusual arrest after first responders from different agencies end up fighting. now local firefighters are facing charges accused of attacking and injuring two police officers. >> reporter: pete suratos in san francisco with the latest on an

since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help.
